Consultation has concluded

We asked for feedback on the Capella draft concept in September 2020 and the skatepark pre design in August 2020. Council has now endorsed a concept design for final community consultation.

We want to check in with you to understand if the concept design reflects the feedback we have received. We will use the final feedback to inform the final design prior to construction.

Council has received federal government funding to commence construction of stage 1 Carpark and Skatepark in 2021.

What we heard from the community about the draft concept

  • We received 73 responses to the online survey.
  • Most respondents (40) were parents of older children (8+).
  • Popular times of use included between 3-7pm (55 respondents) followed by between 7am – 11am, with 41 respondents using the reserve.
  • When asked their favourite thing about Capella reserve, the most popular responses were the large open space (18 responses), followed by the oval (13) and skate park (13).
  • The slide mound with climbing nets was the preferred adventure play item (39) but there was also significant support for the flying fox item (30).
  • The majority of respondents (62) wanted to see the dirt bike track improved however there were a few comments questioning whether it was well used and other comments that were more focused towards mountain bike use rather than bmx.
  • When asked which location was preferred for a fitness trail/obstacle course there was an even split for around the oval (35) and at the north western bank of the reserve (35).
  • The preferred style of fitness equipment was a ninja warrior course, followed by a static course.
  • Climbing and bouldering was the preferred youth recreation element, followed by a basketball 3 on 3.
  • When asked about any other facilities the community would like to see the top response was for a fenced dog area (11), followed by shade (4) and additional large trees along the walking trails (3).

Concept Design

The concept for Capella Reserve has been developed to provide active recreation opportunities for all ages. This includes walking paths, skate and youth recreation, fitness, play equipment, picnic facilities and landscaping. The design includes enhanced entrances and pathway connections and improved amenities to support a range of social activities. The design has drawn inspiration from the surrounding coastal environment and geology of the area whilst also improving visibility for safety and maximising the views to the coast.
